Discover the ghostly happenings in the remains of Richmond Palace and make your own haunted palaces to help decorate your home this Halloween!
Using a mix of real and replica historical objects from the museum’s handling collection, our workshops provide families with a hands on experience where they learn more about the history of the local area, the chance to develop new skills by having a go at arts and craft activities and spend quality time together.
Workshops are aimed at children aged 5-11. For children aged 11 and over, we can make the activities more challenging for them. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. If younger siblings (under 5s) are coming as well and not taking part in the main craft activity, we can provide colouring materials for them free of charge, as the workshop charges are to help us cover the cost of craft materials. When booking, please book places for adults and under 5s, as this lets us know how many chairs we need to put out for the workshop.
Whilst we are thrilled to be welcoming families back to the museum for the workshops, we will still have some measures in place to ensure everyone is as safe as possible. This means we are making wearing a face covering mandatory for all accompanying adults during the workshop.
